Early LifeEdit

From her early years Samantha's father worked in the colonial research and development division specializing in the Battlestar development and enhancement project. He loved to teach Sam about his work and from time to time let her skip school in order to come with him to work. She learned quickly about the systems of a Battlestar and began helping new engineers find there way around the Battlestar pathfinder the project was using. Even though she was a very smart girl when it came to engineering she became a social misfit with children her own age. Her brother had to protect her from getting attacked at school many times which tended to annoy him. It took a while for her parents to notice Sam's problems but resulted in her being baned from following her father to work until she was a teenager. Sam was devastated that she could no longer do something she loved and turned to reading as an escape to her problems. While hanging out in a library on Geminon she meet her "Crew" which she became friends with and stayed that way all throughout school

Teenage LifeEdit

Samantha's teenage years took Samantha to Gemenon's school for the gifted where she graduated with high honers and received several scholarships from different colony worlds. She choose to volunteer to work with her father in the R&D section and after a lot of security screening she was accepted and began working. The job was hard in the fact she was considered daddies girl by the rest of the engineers working on the project due to the fact that she solved many problems in the project.
